From Tamara Gruner PhotographyLavender inspiration: What can be more beautiful than getting married in Provence during the lavender season? An after-wedding session with just the two of you in the lavender fields! We started this after-wedding session at the beautiful La Coquillade with all its little romantic nooks. The blooming roses complement the beauty of our couple. The wind adds a romantic touch to this session – flowing hair and a flowing gown – a girl’s dream come true. From La Couqillade we headed to the lavender fields of famous Luberon in Provence. There, our couple strolled through the fields with the sun shining on their skin and warming them on a wonderful June day. We are in love with this couple showing their love for each other. We can’t take our eyes of them – the bride in her beautiful Musat Bridal gown – a romantic lace fabric combination, which complements the bride’s beauty. Our bride is playing with her dress and the wind in the lavender fields, which make for absolutely stunning moments. And the groom? No words for him!

Is This Real Life? Oh Yes It Is…And It Only Gets Better + Better…

Your wedding day is undoubtably one of the most amazing, special, beautiful days of your life… but for this couple, that joyride continued into their honeymoon in the South of France, where Oliver Fly captured the ongoing magic. From a romantic dinner for two, to after dinner drinks in the lavender fields at golden hour, this right here is what dreams are made of. See more in our Vault!

From Oliver FlyEva and Anoop are a sweet couple from New York City, living in Manhattan. They got married last June in the Big Apple and France and Greece were part of their dream for their honeymoon destinations.

They chose Provence because it has everything they dreamed of for a venue. It is a natural place that is well preserved and is amazingly beautiful, relaxing and has so many different towns and villages to experience, to walk around, and to take magnificent photos at. It is one of those regions that one must see at least once in their lives. Provence is probably the most beautiful region in France.

They love everything about the South of France, the beautiful scenery, the peace and quiet, the lovely vineyards and old Provencal houses, the cypress trees, and the lavender fields.

They spent a few relaxing days at the elegant Bastide de Marie in the French countryside located in the Luberon Regional Park between Gordes and Ménerbes. Eva and Anoop loved the drive around the countryside while appreciating nature, the beautiful sunset, and the selection of restaurants and bars within the region that serve authentic French cuisine and wine. They can’t wait to go back and see more of the South of France with all those stunning villages.

When they planned their honeymoon to France, they could not imagine leaving this place without a great souvenir, that’s why they decided to contact a professional photographer to go back home with some tangible memories that will last for years to come. It was very important for them for this moment to be captured through photographs that they can look at through the years.

We started the session with an intimate dinner at their luxury hotel at La Bastide de Marie, the perfect backdrop where they spent few unforgettable days in the middle of nature with vineyards, cypress trees, enchanting scented lavender bushes and century-old olive trees. The elegant floral design has been made with love by the talented provencal florist Laetitia C. Fleurs d’Atelier.

Their journey in Provence was the perfect timing for the lavender fields in blossom where we spent the second part of their dreamy session during the golden hour.

Nothing better for their honeymoon than joy, elegance and romance in the lavender fields ending a fantastic day with a perfect sunset and a signature drink with Champagne Rosé and a sprig of lavender.

Cheers from Provence !

Peonies, Paper Parasols & A White Horse. This Wedding is a Fairytale IRL

You know that wedding you dreamed about as a little girl. Simply put…this is it. An epic high-low dress. Pink peonies by the buckets – quite literally. Floating paper parasols above an al fresco reception. And a white horse with flower-adorned mane. I can hardly believe this day is real life, so join me in the gallery by Peter & Veronika to see for yourself.

Al Fresco

From The Bride…Our wedding was about being with our friends and family and celebrating in a beautiful place. Working in food, I definitely wanted that to be a big part of the week. Will proposed in provence at the hotel de tourrel (location of our rehearsal dinner) so it made sense for us to return to a place that was so magical for us. We tried to show our friends and family the best of what we had experienced there. I have incredibly talented bridesmaids who helped with so many of the aspects of the wedding from hair and makeup to flowers.
